International law firm Withers LLP was victorious at this year’s Citywealth Magic Circle Awards, winning in two categories. The Family team took home the ‘Family/Matrimonial Law Firm of the Year’ award, and the firm was also voted ‘International Law Firm of the Year’.
The awards, which were held on 13 May 2010 at the Landmark London Hotel, are intended to highlight excellence in the private wealth and private client advisory industries on the basis of feedback from peers and HNWI clients. Shortlisted firms were drawn from nominations from industry peers and submissions were then scrutinised by a judging panel of industry experts.
Julian Lipson, head of the Family Practice Group at Withers LLP said: “We are delighted to have won this award. We have had a hugely successful year as a team and it is great to be recognised by both the Judges and our peers.”
Richard Cassell, partner and Joint Wealth Planning Practice Group Leader, continued: “Over the past year, the firm has continued to develop its international offering, building on presence in Switzerland and Asia handling an increasing amount of complex cross-border work and also opening a new office in the British Virgin Islands focusing on litigation work. We are delighted to see our unique capabilities on the global arena singled out for these prestigious awards.”
